When in the mood for Caribbean street food or if you’re experiencing carnival tabanca (withdrawal), this is the place. My pick is the shark burger with fresh toppings like pineapple, cucumber, and chadon beni topped off with a healthy drizzle of tamarind. The sweet-sour sauce with a slight kick of pepper gives this sandwich a tangy twist. Pair it with a Kola champagne and you’ll feel like you are on Maracas Bay.
